Great moment, Simon. You have captured it very well-sharpness, composition. I like the color fidelity here, nothing exaggerated. A special 50th post indeed.

A great action shot, caught in the right moment. The expression of the lions faces is really awesome. Splendid. Congratulations.
N.B. The workshop photo is as good as well.

You got a very good action shot here!
I like the use of the 300mm and the way you filled the frame with the scene.
The expression on Mr. is so impressive, as well as the Mrs. laying down.
My only nit would be that the fence at the back is slight visible...but I see you used the wider apperture that your lense lets you, so that's nothing else you can do with that POV.
Congratulations for this post and for your first 50's pictures here in TN.
Hope to see many more good things from you in the future.

Congratulations on your 50th, Simon, and welcome back. : )
This is a great action shot, as is your workshop. I like both.
Fantastic moment caught with sharp details and good light.
The POV is perfect, and the expression on the two lions are priceless. A picture is worth a thousand words, and these two images do a great job of telling the story. : )
TFS. : )

Nice action pose... light and colour are good, slight shame about the wire in the background, though that could be "fixed" in PS if necessary. I like it.

bon retour avec cette image en mouvement. Même si le 1/500 ne suffit pas a figer le mouvement, l'instant est bien capté, on perçoit parfaitement l'intention.

Quite indeed - a different shot for your 50th post! And what a magnificent one it is!
The dynamic here is impressive and the poses of the two are brilliant! The look on the male's face is just astounding and i must say i really love his eyes!
You managed to freeze the action well with only a 1/500. The natural colors are terrific and the exposure is well managed.
I really love the photo from the workshop, too. His ego seems to be a little damaged there :)))
All-in-all: congratulations, Simon, for such an impressive work so far in your first 50 posts. I strongly hope you'll have hundreds more here and you'll keep growing in quality just as you did until now!
BRAVO and TFS

Congratulations on your 50th posting! Great action shots. I felt sorry for her until I saw the workshop. Perfect timing capturing all the action but also with the male lion face on and with open eyes which gives real impact. I like the framing, it feels like we are really close to the action.
Perfect shot for your 50th. I can't wait to see the 100th shot

I love this capture....I think this guy is a bit aggressive to my liking but beautiful all the same. I wonder if he bought her a drink first? hahaha! Nice composition, color and clarity...the detail on the lions face with the growling expression is perfect!
